today i’m sharing ten classic winter basics you should have in your wardrobe. recently i heard a phrase coined ‘weardrobe’ as these are the items you actually wear. sounds good because a solid seasonal wardrobe (weardrobe) gives you something to wear every single day. these ten classic winter items will create the foundation of your wardrobe. since winter is sticking around for a few more weeks, let’s take a peek at the ten classic items we’ll reach for until the daffodils make an appearance.
a cozy cardigan is a perfect sweater for lazy days. choose an oversized sweater with pockets in a neutral color. but don’t forget to add a favorite pattern like stripes.
a crew neck looks terrific popped over shirts or wear it all by its lonesome. this sweater is a great layering piece and all-around foundation of many of your outfits.
turtlenecks look chic all by themselves. it’s a universal piece that brings your outfit to life. turtleneck, jeans, and hoop earrings are a simple and easy outfit. don’t forget a ribbed texture adds interest.
day in and day out i reach for hoop earrings. they add simplicity and polish to any outfit. recently, i purchased these gold hoop earrings from Macy’s. the goal was to find a pair that didn’t drag my earlobes down. these thick gold hoops might look heavy, but they’re featherweight and quickly turned into my go-to earrings.
black skinny jeans
look for a pair of black skinny jeans that fit like a glove. tuck them into boots on a chilly day or wear them with ballet flats when the temps are mild.
sunglasses are a must-have even in winter. while the sun may be absent on any given day our eyes still need protection.
choose a belt with silver hardware or gold hardware. the good news is there is a prominence of belts in fashion again. belt your shirts, coats, or pants. belts give a style element to any outfit. go up one size if you want the tail to hang down.
choose a lightweight coat that has big enough sleeves that you can wear bulky sweaters underneath.
a black blazer is a must-have item. but then look for a herringbone or plaid as a cool alternative to basic black.
ballet flats are a comfortable alternative to heels. the advantage is i can walk for miles in a pair of ballet flats. and they look chic with a pair of blue jeans.
there you have it, ladies, ten classic winter basics that you will reach for time and again. enjoy the rest of your weekend.
